    I just looked at it. Do the legs detach? I guess i'm not really following how it works. But it is a minimalist bipod, it might work for me.

    Are you old enough to remember Tinker Toys? That's how it works. I am not sure "Minimalist" is the right word.

    Not cheap but I love my Atlas. Move the legs up or down whatever fits best in the space behind your seat, or use the QD. No comment on the grip pod as I don't use them.

    Pulled my atlas off of my 5r and it'll work as is, I think, in between the front seat! Didn't get a chance to zero or do any load development because of 30mph winds here. Looking forward to it though! I finally have a good trigger, and a good upper workout a FSB.

    I think the important thing here is to consider how you plan to employ the bipod and under what conditions it'll be used. For shooting off a bench or static prone on a level surface you'll be fine with almost anything currently out there. That said, I often find myself shooting in various environments and was looking at bipods that offer a bit more flexibility in terms of being able to effectively adapt to a variety of conditions. The bipod I run currently is the KAC bipod, and since taking ownership, I've been able to take full advantage of its versatility. From shooting off boulders or deadfall in uneven rocky mountainous terrain, to shooting on flat KD ranges, it really has proven to be the most effective, durable and versatile bipod I've used, especially when equipped with the meat tenderizer feet. The obvious downside is cost, but it's not like most of us in this group aren't willing to invest in quality kit anyway. ETA: I should add that I've used Atlas as well, and the KAC offers a bit more in terms of added features and flexibility. It's also more robust. I've always felt like I could easily break an Atlas given how hard I run my kit sometimes. But as others pointed out, regardless of what you choose, I'd go with a QD option and just remove it if you need to stow it in a tight space.

    I own one KAC bipod, I like it but have not fully appreciated it more than my PSR Atlas bipods. Its very nice kit, but I haven't gotten to appreciate enough on my big Bolt gun. Maybe I need to run it on other guns. Or maybe I need to buy more of them

    Love that video, that was good gun porn.
